I thought the magic number was 26 hrs...? This morning I found 1 egg on the ground near the food/water, when I opened the run at 830am. Unusual for my hens- a first actually! (they re really good about using the next boxes- which are closed at night) Then I got 2 more brown eggs around midday and 1 more when I closed up at 830pm!! Thats 4 and i only have 3 brown egg layers! I know whose egg it is- they are always speckled...Which means she either laid one from the roost after 830pm last night or Snowflake laid 2 eggs in one day!!?? How is that possible. My other hens lay blue and green- so there is no doubt whose it is.
